The Dark Knight IMAX Prologue

I got my copy of batman begins today and just watched the dark knight prologue.Let me tell you it was some of the most stunning HD footage i have ever seen.

Set's my exceptions for the Blu-Ray very high indeed and could even even be the best Blu-Ray transfer ever judging by this. Blu-Ray just keeps getting better.

Keep in mind that the prologue and selected scenes in the movie were shot on IMAX stock, while the rest of the movie was shot on standard 35mm.

That's not to say that the Blu-ray won't look great. I'm sure it will. But this one scene comes from a much higher quality source than the majority of the movie and may not be representative of what the whole movie will look like.

On your BB disc, are you able to access the menu from the movie? Mine won't let me. I have to head to the end of the movie to get the disc menu to appear.

It's solid, but I'm not sure it's reference quality. Got me excited for the movie, though.

I like the bit when u got to see the joker in his purple suit. Just the detail and richness of the color looked amazing.

Those little things just add so much to the overall movie experience.

Right, exactly. And if you switch to the TruHD track for the IMAX scene, you get subtitles.
